Welcome to my world!
Everything I produce is an extension of my heart and soul. I'm a passionate artivist (a combination of an artist + an activist) and a human rights advocate. I tell stories about human rights, mental health and other issues I'm passionate about through the use of art and makeup.
I chose makeup because I absolutely love it. It’s an unusual choice when it comes to activism and that’s exactly why I chose it, for the juxtaposition. Makeup is perceived as a dis-empowering machine to women because it's marketed as a way to conform to society's beauty standards and to cover up our so-called insecurities. However, I aim to break the stereotype and show that makeup is neither inherently sexist nor feminist; the products themselves can be used as artistic tools to deliver messages based on the artist’s preference.
I aim to create a new face for activism using makeup with a vision to break the stereotypes around it. Moreover, I aim to create a safe space for people to share their stories and discuss sensitive social issues through art.
